ArcticNet is proud to welcome applicants to its annual poster competition at the 2021 ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meeting. The annual competition recognizes excellence in science and its presentation by early career researchers. All Masters and PhD students working in fields relevant to ArcticNet’s thematic areas of: Contaminants, Inuit Health Education and Adaptation, Knowledge Exchange and co-production, Data Management, Marine, Northern Policy and Development and Terrestrial are eligible to enter. Applicants are not required to be on a project currently funded by ArcticNet.
To enter, interested applicants must submit their poster abstract to the Call for Abstracts. There is a limit of one poster per applicant.
Applicants will be notified if their submission is accepted in September 2021. A final version of the poster (in JPEG or PNG format) must be submitted by November 22, 2021. Instructions for the final version submission will be sent out later on.
A panel of judges will evaluate eligible posters based on set criteria, including clarity, comprehensiveness and conciseness of the abstract, the scientific quality and presentation of the research.
There are three categories in which posters will be judged: Social and Health Science, Marine Science, and Territorial Science. Prizes are available for first, second and third place winners of each category at $600, $400, and $200 CAD respectively. The award winners will be announced at the end of the conference.
